Minus The Bear celebrate ten years of Planet of Ice
Minus the Bear and the road are good friends.
Criss-crossing the globe for years, the band has consistently released critically acclaimed albums and developed an amazing catalog of music, which every fan likely has developed a personal relationship. While the greatness of an album can be debated, certain ones mark turning points in a band’s career, and from time to time they may choose to celebrate that. This Spring, Minus the Bear will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of their album Planet of Ice.
For this celebration they are once again hitting the road and on this tour will be playing the Planet of Ice album in its entirety at each show. It’s a worthy celebration as this album marks many turning points in the band’s career but none as important as the slight shift in their sound that we as fans have continued to see evolve over the last ten years and the subsequent album releases. Few bands allow themselves to sonically grow in the ways that Minus the Bear have and even fewer find success, and for fans of the band it is one of the things we love.
The Planet of Ice anniversary tour will find the band out for most of the spring on into early summer and joining them for the first leg (April 19 – May 5) will be The Coathangers, and The New Trust on the second (May 30 – June 13) . Both opening acts should entice you to the venue on time as they each will help to set the tone for the night to follow with their own unique sound and vibe.
